Re: [registrars] auto deact -vs- auto renew


A choice makes sense if the registry can do that, as long as we're talking
about that happening at the end the grace period. It needs to be consistent
during the grace period so we resolve the expiration date issue long term
without losing the transparency that displaying that date in the registry
whois provides.

   How about this... Let each registrar choose what it prefers.  Maintain
   the  existing auto-renew for those of us who like that, but let those
   who prefer  auto-delete select that as an option.  This is just
   engineering; I see no  reason this could not be done.

   I certainly didn't mean to imply that we should not be responsible for
    mistakes.  But if we can choose the consequences, let's take the
   lesser  ones ;-)
